Security & Myth in the Rural

Organic Surveillance is a creative research (research-creation) project that unpacks and reveals the ways that Northern Ontario landowners protect and secure their property, through preemptive and deterrence surveillance mechanisms. This creative scholarly intervention seeks to do so through community-based research, experimental artistic performances and documentation; and theoretical and cultural analysis. This website is an archive of the research process, and exhibition of my scholarly findings. 





This research was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

I acknowledge that the preliminary creative research in this paper was conducted on Robinson-Huron Treaty territory and the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnaabeg (Markstay/Warren Ontario). Further research and writing of this paper was produced on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties (Katarokwi/Kingston Ontario).
